Dear Rapp Fans, As some of you may or may not know, I was diagnosed with stage III metastatic prostate cancer in November of 2010. My treatments have gone well and the cancer has for the most part remained in my prostate and the right ischium at the base of my pelvis. Kill Shot was on schedule, and as is my habit, I was planning to lock myself away at my cabin for June and July so I could finish the book. Unfortunately, the cancer did not cooperate. In early June the tumor on my prostate spread and got a hold of a nerve bundle. At the same time the cancer on the ischium began to eat away at the bone, which caused some muscles and tendons that run down the back of my leg to snap off. The pain that this caused made it nearly impossible to sit still and concentrate, which is a fairly important part of writing a book. My doctors and I had been discussing radiation since the very beginning, and we made the decision to begin treatment in late July. By the end of August the pain was beginning to subside. During this time I was holding out hope that I could refocus on Kill Shot and still get the book out in time for Christmas. I made it through the first half of my forty treatments with very few side effects, and then around September 1, fatigue began to set in. Once again I found it extremely difficult to focus on the book for more than an hour or two. I have never missed a pub date and it pains me to come up short on this one. I desperately wanted to keep my commitment to my publisher, the trade, and most important, you. Even though my condition has continued to improve, my doctors have told me I will not be back to full strength until the first of November. After that, they say I will feel better than I've felt in two years. Rather than hand in a substandard Rapp novel, my agent Sloan Harris, my editor Emily Bestler, and I decided that we would move the pub date of Kill Shot to February 7, 2012. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you, and I promise that I will do my best to make sure the extra few months are worth the wait. Thank you for your patience, prayers, and goodwill. Keep the faith! Vince Flynn

The reason this is taking so long to get out to his readers is that Vince Flynn was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer last year. He has been unable to write this book as soon as he wanted. Be patient.

We are all awaiting the next adventure of Mitch Rapp. Thank you, Anonymous, for sharing the fact that Vince Flynn has cancer. I heard about this the other day and was greatly saddened ~ he is so young. But I also heard that he is doing much better and pray for his complete recovery! February will be here before we know it!

I discovered Vince Flynn and the Rapp series when i was serving in Iraq. A Flynn paperback was a standard stowaway anywhere i traveled. Rapp stories helped me pass some nerve-racking lulls away. Your fans are behind you Vince -we'll wait as long as you need. Speedy recovery boss - chin up. USAF!

BN took money out of my account but I can not open the new book on any of my devices. They have also not responded to my email about the situation. I am sure that I will give the book a real 5 star rating if I could only read it. Get well soon Vince. Am looking forward to many more books from you.

Take all the time you need and get well. We'll all wait. We'll just have to read your lousy competitors and it'll increase our anticipatory delight! Funny how you can get attached to an author, isn't it? There's a lot of people in your cheering section.

I was counting the days to get the book but a couple of more months won't hurt. Thank you so much Flynn for taking your time to let your fans know how is going with you and the book. Love your Mitch Rapp series and I can't wait to read #12 "Kill Shot". Hope you have a speed up recovery.

Terrific read!! I inhale these Rapp novels and end up going back and reading them over and over as I wait for the next one. Even with his cancer battle going on Flynn has still managed to put out another very well written Rapp episode. I love meeting up with the already known characters from the sequels in the now written prequels. I got better intel on the relationship between Mitch and Stan Hurley in this installment so can relate to their mutual respect and consideration of each other. I have read each and every one of the twelve(12) Rapp novels and will continue to do so. You keep writing them Mr Flynn and I will continue to read and recommend them to everyone. They are a big hit with my buddy veterans at my local VA Medical Center. Vetlass in Louisville, KY

Dear Vince Flynn: My family, my neighbor and I are all praying for your complete and pain free recovery from this awful illness. We have read each of your books and were able to hear you talk at a luncheon sponsored by Northern Trust in Newport Beach, CA. You demonstrated knowledge of your subject, a great sense of humor and refreshing skill at public speaking. You signed our 4 copies of "Extreme Measures" and were personally charming. I am so glad that you are determined to complete "Kill Shot." I've been missing my 2011 annual pleasure in reading your latest novel. I look forward to reading it in 2012. At this time in history we need Mitch Rapp more than ever. With all best wishes to you and your family, Your devoted reader in Orange County, CA

Dear Mr. Flynn, My family and I are wishing you a speedy recovery, I believe I know what both you and family are going through over the past year. Last April 2011, I lost my older brother Michael after cancer took him. It's times like this when families and friends are brought together to share in our bond of love for the sick and injuried. I can only hope that during this holiday season your friends and family can bring you their love and remove some of the pain you are currently going through. I wish both you and your family and happy and merry holiday season. Sincerely, Rick Tallent Fort Lauderdale, FL. Semper fi

I give five stars to Mr. Flynn in his fight against cancer. The novel, however, is only a 3 star story. I say this as a fan of the series, but in this look back at the beginning of Mitch Rapp's career, not much of interest happens. Mostly what we see is some infighting among bureaucrats. Yes, there is also some killing, a love interest for Mitch, and the story of how he learned to trust Irene Kennedy. It's not bad, but just not a five star story. there seems to be excess verbiage and filler stories to give the book some heft. Just like Rapp needed to lie low for awhile, so does Mr. Flynn. Rest, take care of yourself, and come back with a super story for your loyal fans.

I have been eagerly waiting for this book to come out and it does not disappoint. It is great to go back and learn more about the early years. I can't wait for the next one.

Having read all the Mitch Rapp books at least twice (or more) I anxiously waited for this one. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. The interactions between the hero and the others was described on a very superficial basis. The action descriptions, other than multiple shootings, were superficial and week. The denoument was illogical. I hope Mr Flynn has a good recovery and, with his next book, I can go back to 4 or 5 star ratings.

Thanks Vince, they have been as much fun to read as, I am sure they were for you to write. Good luck with everything. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Not sure what was wrong with this book but I just could not stay interested, no matter how hard I tried. It was a good book just not up to par on what I am used to from Flynn. This is my favorite series of any author I read and I read a few. My Dad who is a big Flynn fan said the same thing. Just not what I expected but I still recommend the book. It is Rapp after all :)

Once again Rapp, Hurley and crew held my attention from beginning to end. Seemed to be bloodier than past books probably because the number of bad guys Rapp had to eliminate. Will be waiting for the next volume. Highly recommend if you like fast paced action. Descriptive enough that it is easy to imagine yourself watching the action take place.

I hate preordering from the Snook. It won't open when promised, but they sure want their money on time. Is the Kindle this bad? Mac

Due to my own chronic illness I have been bedridden a lot and by accident discovered your books which I love. I had never read fiction before and I'm thoroughly enjoying your Mitch Rapp series although accidentally read them out of order. I still need to catch up with some of the missing ones I don't have. I am so sorry to hear about your illness and very hopeful you will recover and can continue to write. You have opened my eyes to a newly found interest and kept me company and interested during some of my worst health episodes. I can't wait to get this new book. Please don't kill Mitch yet and definitely don't give up on yourself.

This book is just as good if not better than the first. I haven't found a series that is this much of a page turner for years.
